Boomkat Product Review:
Norway's Bjorn Torske returns with his fourth studio album 'Kokning'. Opening on a playful note with a slow-building title track, Torske strums a lone acoustic guitar against a background of shimmering synths setting the scene for a highly engaging piece of work. Throughout the course of the album a wide palette of genres are taken in and adapted to the Skrangle-House style (an open ended take on house music stemming from the Oslo nightclub 'Skansen'), and dub looms large over much of the music on show. Often a soft, almost melancholic side to Torske shines through, making use of weird and wonderful sounds (Balearic, House, Dub) and incorporating them into his own unique style.
